Kansas legislators choose to ignore voters’ concerns

We are not secretly a progressive-lefty state. But Kansans are much, much more moderate than our red reputation would suggest.

There’s a huge disconnect between the government that Kansans want and the government Kansans get. 

That probably doesn’t sound all that intuitive. After all, Kansans vote for the mostly Republican, mostly conservative governance they get. If they want something different, why haven’t they made different choices? 

I don’t know the answer to that. But the disconnect is still plain to see.
